I am stupid

Yes people, I am stupid. Or maybe you could refer to me as dumb, idiotic, brainless and mostly clueless.

I have come to this realization as listed in a prior post, but not only that, I continue to do stupid things. My brain cells are diminishing at a rapid rate.

Monday I took Carson to school, came home and cleaned up the house and by then it was time to go pick him back up. I had asked my dad to watch the boys at noon so I could go get my hair trimmed. On the way to the hair salon I glance at the passenger seat and notice Carson's backpack is sitting there. In my head I think to myself, oh no, I forgot to give Carson his backpack. I better go drop it off to him at school. Then moments later I realize that 1) I am in fact losing my brain and 2) I had already picked up my son from preschool an hour ago and he was at home.

Case in point.

A funny story I feel should be shared occurred back when I first got married. I had no idea how to cook - none. I was on one of my first grocery shopping trips to Aldi. I came across a can of sloppy joe and was shocked to see that it was only something like $0.49. I grabbed that can and a few more and bought a package of buns to go with it. When I got home I was so excited about the deal I got on our dinner. As I was getting ready to prepare it I read the label and it said something about browning the ground beef. I felt like I just got gypped. I didn't know I was supposed to buy a pound of ground beef to go with it. I thought it all came ready to go in the can.

Yes, people - refer back to the title of this post.

Back up to speed to today. I was making a pie and was looking all over the refrigerator for the whipped topping. Guess where it was? It was sitting right on the counter where I had placed it just moments earlier.

Are these signs of early onset Alzheimer's Disease, sheer stupidity, or am I just ready for my husband to come home and relieve me of single parent duty?

Thankfully (hallelujah!) his flight gets in late tomorrow night unless this ridiculous spring snow storm decides to dump on us and delays his flight. I will be p.o.'d to the point that you do not want to get in my way.


It has been a long 10 days without his wonderful, loving, patient, caring, break-giving presence. I have realized I take his "help" for granted. He gives me my sanity and is someone I can vent to when I am having a hard time with my mommy duties. He supports me and my efforts as a full-time stay-at-home-mom. Without that support and encouragement I wouldn't be as confident in my abilities as a mom. I am so thankful that he is there for us as such a wonderful father, husband, bread-winner, and strong support system.

Honey, hurry home!
